A bit about us:

Stealth startup backed by Polychain, Robot Ventures, Accel, and the Solana Foundation is growing! I've also placed 2 people with them and both have had fantastic feedback on the culture and opportunity. Their product is a blockchain ecosystem that will allow others to build out blockchain to their own application. They’re building a high-performance, modular infrastructure to scale blockchains by separating the “slow” part of blockchains from executing programs and data availability (similar to Cosmos or Polkadot just much faster). With their infrastructure, any application can scale and spin out as its own blockchain without increasing its security risk. They have a very competitive compensation package and great benefits.

Why join us?

  • Great health benefits package, PTO / Vacation, 401K + match
  • Great culture, innovative team, and growth opportunity
  • Highly competitive comp package with a base salary + cash bonus + token or equity.
  • Opportunity to make a high impact on both the company’s product and as well as the industry at large.
